Go to the Yellow Swans & The Cherry Point website  Yellow Swans & The Cherry Point - Live at camp Blood [Troniks - 2006]

Live at camp blood is a head melting kaleidoscopic noise trip, clocking  in at near the twenty minutes mark. It rarely lets up and you'll leave your initially listening sessions slightly shaken. But like the best noise, over time it develops its own sense of chaotic satisfaction.

It all starts with a corrugated steel ripping pulse ,  then swirls of noise erupt from  it's edges, like cracks in the sound. There are really lots of neat swirls of fiery static going on, as  feed guitar back is added giving an animal like purr. There is a structure here, as the pluses of static dip in and out more and more. A sea saw like sound bounces about, and the sound picture clears somewhat as the guitar makes some enjoyable harmonic screams. It's like the sound of something sourly electronic bouncing on a string. As the track moves on it alternates between the sour electronic harmonics and corrugated steel tears of sound, but all along there’s a superb tense atmosphere, heavy with hovering dread.

A tasty little offering of audio terror, which makes prefect sense when a quick hit of audio carnage is needed. Another very satisfying release from The cherry point and my introduction to  the Yellow swans. If all  their stuff is of this quality, I will be  hunting  some down, as soon as I can
